WILMINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--August 8, 2018--Charles River Laboratories International, Inc. (NYSE: CRL) today reported its results for the second quarter of 2018. For the quarter, revenue from continuing operations was $585.3 million, an increase of 24.8% from $469.1 million in the second quarter of 2017. Revenue growth was driven by all three business segments, particularly the Discovery and Safety Assessment segment.

The acquisitions of MPI Research, Brains On-Line, and KWS BioTest contributed 15.1% to consolidated second-quarter revenue growth. The impact of foreign currency translation benefited reported revenue growth by 2.6%. Excluding the effect of these items, organic revenue growth was 7.1%.

On a GAAP basis, second-quarter net income from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders was $52.2 million, a decrease of 3.4% from net income of $54.0 million for the same period in 2017. Second-quarter diluted earnings per share on a GAAP basis were $1.06, a decrease of 5.4% from $1.12 for the second quarter of 2017. The lower GAAP net income and earnings per share were driven primarily by acquisition and integration costs, including amortization of intangible assets, primarily related to MPI Research.

On a non-GAAP basis, net income from continuing operations was $79.3 million for the second quarter of 2018, an increase of 27.2% from $62.4 million for the same period in 2017. Second-quarter diluted earnings per share on a non-GAAP basis were $1.62, an increase of 25.6% from $1.29 per share for the second quarter of 2017. The non-GAAP net income and earnings per share increases were driven primarily by the contribution from the MPI acquisition, as well as gains on the Company’s venture capital investments and a lower tax rate. The gains on the Company’s venture capital investments were $0.17 per share in the second quarter of 2018, compared to gains of $0.03 for the same period in 2017.

James C. Foster, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We believe our robust second-quarter revenue growth is indicative of an extremely healthy market environment, and our position as the premier, early-stage CRO with a unique ability to support our clients from target discovery through non-clinical development. Our clients, both large and small, are intensifying investments in their pipelines, which is creating new business opportunities for Charles River. At this critical time, we believe that it is incumbent upon us to invest in our portfolio, our people, and our infrastructure to solidify our position as our clients’ early-stage partner of choice, and to enhance shareholder value. We are pleased with our second-quarter performance, and optimistic about the opportunities for growth in 2018 and beyond. As a result, we are increasing our revenue and earnings per share guidance for the year.”
